Celtic: Hoops ‘keeping tabs’ on Matthew Sorinola

Celtic: Hoops ‘keeping tabs’ on Matthew Sorinola -Celtic News

Celtic have been named among the clubs interested in Union SG full-back Matthew Sorinola, according to a report from Wales Online

The lowdown: Career so far

A product of the youth system at MK Dons, London-born Sorinola made 46 senior appearances for the League One club, scoring twice and providing six assists.

In 2021, the 21-year-old left-back was snapped up by Belgian Jupiler Pro League side Union SG on a free transfer, where he is under contract until 2024 (Transfermarkt).

But, despite the lengthy time remaining on the deal, a host of clubs are paying close attention to the Englishman’s situation…

The latest: Hoops named

As per Wales Online, Celtic are ‘keeping tabs’ on the talented youngster, who was singled out for an ‘outstanding’ performance against Wigan by now Swansea City boss Russell Martin.

The report claims that Norwich City and Swansea are both in the ‘race’ to sign Sorinola and the former recently lodged an enquiry regarding his availability.

It’s also stated that ‘sources’ have suggested former Anderlecht boss Vincent Kompany could look to take the starlet to Burnley should the appointment be made official.

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou celebrates

Celtic fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict: Smart move

Hoops’ manager Ange Postecoglou appears determined to add an adequate left-back cover to the squad this summer having already been heavily linked with a move for Mohanad Jeahze.

That’s despite current incumbent Greg Taylor performing admirably during a successful 2021/22 campaign at Celtic Park. The 24-year-old earned an impressive 6.94 average Sofascore rating from 24 Scottish Premiership outings, winning 4.5 duels per game in the process.

Meanwhile, Sorinola rated just 6.65 in Belgium whilst making 14 fleeting substitute appearances in the arguably inferior league.

Despite that lack of regular action, the £315,000 valued ace’s form in England suggests he would provide a worthwhile addition to the Lennoxtown ranks, albeit perhaps as an understudy to Taylor from the outset.
